Lazarus, Vol. 2: Lift (Lazarus #2) by Greg Rucka (Writer), Michael Lark (Artist)

The gods will bless us by deciding which of us they deem worthy. The present is crap, I mean future and all the power lies in the hands of a few rich families (surprise, surprise); when the Carlyles have their Lift, a glorified event in which they decide who has talents or skills they can use and then promote them from waste to serf. It sounds so wrong, but considering that being waste is a guarantee to end up dead in gruesome way, what the heck, a nice job and food can make being a serf good enough.

This book follows Forever "Eve" Carlyle attempting to stop a terrorist attack on the day of the Lift and a family that travels by foot all the way to Denver in the hopes of being selected in the Lift.

Overall, the story was, we get a little bit of a mystery going with a mysterious text to Eve, hope they expand a lot more in the next book and as for the family on its way to the Lift, wonder where they'll end up. The illustrations where good, had a great play on color and light that really brought feeling to the despair of this future.
